Sinfonia n. 22 in D minor

I was so happy to listen to Gian Andrea Guerra playing my violin togheter with Quartetto Vanvitelli in this wonderful location. The baroque violin is a Maggini model, fully decorated with inlaid fingerboard and tailpiece, double purfling and arabesques on the one-piece bird's eye maple back.

Morning Prayer
by Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky

from "Children's Album" for piano

arranged for string quartet by L. Sauter

I took a little fun recording this short quartet in our workshop, playing 2 violins made in 2020 and a viola made in 2020.

We didn't have a cello ready, so my wife Kathrin lent me his doublebass !

I used only my phone to capture video and audio, and a bit of editing to put everything togheter.

In the gallery below you can find the instruments made by me that I played in the video (violin I, violin II, viola).

Just click on the scrolls to see the instruments.
